  1. Probability of 2 or more independent events occurring is found by multiplying the individual events

    Assuming replacement, P(both) = .08 * .08

    At least one = one or two. Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.

    P(one) = .08 * .92

    P(both) shown above
